Stanford Humanities Fellow Program
Postdocs for recent PhDs in the humanities
Competition for fellowships in the Stanford Humanities Fellows Program for 2006-07 has closed. Please check the website http://fellows.stanford.edu for an announcement of competition for 2007-08.
Below is a description of the 2006-07 program.
The Stanford Humanities Fellows Program is a postdoctoral fellowship designed to give the best recent Ph.D. recipients in the humanities a unique opportunity to develop as scholars and teachers. Each year up to six fellowships are awarded for a two-year term. Fellows teach one course and contribute a second course-equivalent per year in one of Stanford's fifteen humanities departments. In addition, Fellows participate in the intellectual life of the program by sharing work in progress, meeting regularly as a group and with faculty, and generally contributing to the community of humanists at Stanford. It is expected that Fellows are in residence during the term of their appointment. The total number of fellows in the program will typically be between 12 and 15. The annual stipend for this postdoctoral appointment is approximately $50,000, and includes additional support for computer assistance, research, and relocation expenses.
